Description


Some might say Julian is sheltered. His sister Pookie certainly would. But he lives large, and his eternal optimism allows him to see infinite possibilities wherever he looks.



He has to think positively since he believes he might only be on this earth for a few more years. As his family moves from Washington D.C. to Maine, Julian feels the weight of the transition. His once strong "uni-sense" with his sister isn't working anymore, but if he can do something truly incredible, like discover a comet that he can name for himself, he'll be able to unite his family even after he's gone.



As Julian searches the night sky, he discovers his neighbor, Mr. X, who on one hand can put an end to his parents' dream of opening their B&B by opposing the addition their house required, and on the other hand needs healing of his own.



As an avid student of science, Julian understands that there is so much about the universe that we don't yet know. Who is to say what's possible and what's not?

Praise For…


Praise for Mockingbird:



Winner of the National Book Award



"Allusions to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, the portrayal of a whole community's healing process, and the sharp insights into Caitlyn's behavior enhance this fine addition to the recent group of books with narrators with autism and Asperger's." --Booklist



"A valuable book." --School Library Journal



"A strong and complex character study." --The Horn Book



Praise for Seeing Red:



*"A powerful indictment of injustice of all forms and an equally powerful and dramatic demonstration that young people, by taking individual action, can actually change history. This is an important book that deserves the widest possible readership." --Booklist, starred review



"This thought-provoking book will be a valuable addition for any library." --Library Media Connection



Praise for The Badger Knight:



*"The integration of historical facts into the text is seamless; readers will leave knowing a sturdy amount about England and Scotland in 1346 but won't even notice how much they are learning, as it is all so cleanly embedded into Adrian's gripping, often harrowing, adventures." --BCCB, starred review



"Her skillful rendering of medieval life–its smells and limitations and ignorance–is reminiscent of the best from Kathryn Cushman or Avi's Crispin novels." --Booklist



"The medieval-era mud and dung, as well as a scene of graphic battle violence, should captivate readers seeking total immersion in a distant, yet vibrantly imagined era." --Publishers Weekly
